Summary: After Journey’s End Ianto climbs up the precarious ladder to Myfanwy’s nest with some chocolate and a medkit.

Why you should read it:Journey’s End ultimately had an unsatisfying ending for those of us who wanted to travel back to the Hub and see what happened there. Happily, fic writers have done what they do best and filled in the missing scenes, and this short piece is my favourite of the many. It’s quiet and understated, and instead of focussing on Jack, Kei has shifted our gaze to someone in the Hub who gets overlooked on the show as a character more often than not -- Myfanwy.

What I like about this fic is the sense of wonder that Ianto maintains, even after everything that has happened in the time that he and Myfanwy have been at Torchwood. Kei doesn’t gloss over the tragedies, but neither allows Ianto to wallow; he is preoccupied instead with calming a wild creature that is now perhaps a little domestic, a little injured and a little scared after the world moved. Myfanwy still reads as an animal, not a super-pet, and the relationship between the remaining members of the Torchwood team feels balanced. This is a gentle story that made me smile, and I think that’s reason enough to recommend that you read it.

Authors appreciate your comments! Feel free to let them know if you liked their work.

Hahaha, I'm sorry, Kei! I was going to send you a message to say ::nudge-nudge:: and then I didn't.

Oh you wrote this back in the days when we were innocent. I feel so sad about Myfanwy now.
